EA MMA game purposely downplaying Jake Shields skills?

Did Strikeforce purposely have EA Sports downplay Jake Shields (25-4-1) skills in the new EA Sports MMA game? Following Shields vacating of the Strikeforce middleweight belt for the UFC, the motive for underselling the former Strikeforce star is plausible. As we noticed the stat comparison side-by-side with¬† Shields and Mayhem Miller (24-7-1) in the game. Miller’s stats are above Shields in all fields except ground oddly, where they are matched.

We love Mayhem as much as the next fan, but to have Shields as an underdog, after the fact that he has been on a 14 win tear against top notch contenders such as Dan Henderson, Robbie Lawler, Paul Daley, and even Miller himself it seems a bit illogical. What do you guys think?

    Jake Shields only has a ground game, his standup blows!!…And he’s not that great all around, he will be exposed…

      “..and the dumbest comment on the internet for today goes to..Agent00618!” lol. Seriously?!? That’s definitely a fix if there ever was one! Jake Shields has taken out most of the best fighters in the world in the Middleweight division: Dan Henderson, Jason Miller, Robbie Lawler, Paul Daley, Nick Thompson, Mike Pyle, Carlos Condit, Yushin Okami… that’s ridiculously impressive!

    I dont think so… he is just as boring in this game as he is in real life… I think they nailed it
